About 3 million people in the United States suffer from primary hyperhidrosis, extreme sweating not caused by another disorder. This condition persists despite the use of strong antiperspirants. Many people have severe underarm perspiration (axillary hyperhidrosis), while others suffer from sweaty palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), making a simple handshake a cause for anxiety. Primary hyperhidrosis affects men and women equally.
Botox injections are administered in our Santa Fe office. Injections are given in the underarms or the palms of the hand, wherever the patient finds perspiration is most copious. Reliability of the injections may increase with time.
You may experience minor bruising at the injection site, and some patients develop a headache, dry mouth, or rash. Any lingering discomfort should resolve within a few days. Botox treatments are not permanent and need to be occasionally renewed. Botox treatments of the both underarms or both palms average at about $1,900.00.
